states. people look presidential. i don't think president obama will call mitt romney a liar in the next debate. that's not presidential. i think he'll be much more aggressive. i don't think romney is a liar, he just manages to convince himself that any position is fine at the time. ted kennedy had it best. ted kennedy said i'm the pro choice candidate. my candidate is the multiple choice candidates. mitt romney says whatever he has to say and there's no core belief there. that's a problem for him in the general election because i think people are into that. they get that politicians say anything and obama doesn't do that. obama pretty much tells like it is. did he do a good job in the debate? >> no. >> governor i want to ask you about vice president biden yesterday on the stump, some comments that people are calling a gaffe by biden where he said obama and biden want to raise taxes by a trillion dollars. guess what, yes we do. is that the right kind of message? >> wait a minute. excuse me but the rest of that you haven't in full context. yes we'll raise taxes on the wealthy. they have b

mitt romney as the next president of the united states. >> reporter: the day's events were overshadowed by a video of senator obama reading off a prepared script. before a predominantly black audience he inplayed the federal government held back money after hurricane katrina based on race. he noticed hurricane andrew in florida the government's response was -- >> we won't wait for to you scratch it together. because you're part of the american family. >> reporter: after katrina he said it was different. >> what's happening down in new orleans? where's your dollar? tells me somehow the people down in new orleans they don't care about as much. >> reporter: in this speech that we saw last night the president said he didn't think the initial response to hurricane katrina was motivated by race. he said that incompetence was colorblind. this speech was covered in 2007. it was aired last night on the conservative media, fox's sean hannity. that prompted that some speculate that the right is concerned about this campaign. >> also on the debate site is kevin madden a senior adviser to the romney

that romney separates his campaign. they know now the most important between this debate and the next one not to blow the momentum. to blow on that fire and make it larger and not douse it. >> what's the challenge for the obama campaign? >> reporter: to bounce back. two very significant democrats who i talked to last night looking at the debates said i would call the debate trading places. mitt romney's back was against the wall now the president's back is against the wall and he needs a much sharper, much more passionate debate performance or people will not have the confidence that he has what it takes for a second term and a vision to carry that through. >> major, let me read you a tweet this morning. it says this wasn't a debate so much as mitt romney took obama for a cross country drive strapped to the roof of his car. so what is the spin that the white house is putting on what happened to the president last night to explain it? >> reporter: well the white house knows that the president was on the low end of the energyic scale. they are calling that presidential and slightly differen
